  • Beautiful place, great food!

    Blue Ridge Grill is a favorite and has never disappointed me! Love the casual decor of dining room, and the large screened porch area near entrance. Food is excellent!! Lots of local selections and I love the Georgia Trout. No question that BGR is pricey, but I go when I want a special dinner and it lives up to expectations. We did learn at recent visit that a vegetable plate, though not listed on the menu, is available at a very reasonable price and the veggies are delicious! (Everything is a la carte, and usual vegetable "sides" are served family style--$9 per side will serve several people.) A great place!

  • Oldie but a goodie
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    The crowd here is going to be on the much older side and that's a shame because they take relatively normal ingredients, like salmon, and do great things with them. I had salmon over a bed of portabella mushroom ravioli and a pile of wild mushrooms. The cream sauce was amazing as were the wild mushrooms. I didn't even get one of the family style sides as the quantity was already enough. This place is pretty pricey, expect to pay $30 before any drinks, sides, or salads, but worth it for a special occasion.

    Ambience was great as was our server. We felt the prices were a bit high. My friend had the grilled scallops which were far superior to the scallops I ordered (the special, and they were too heavily "sauced"). I would go for the grilled sea scallops next time. My husband had the swordfish which was excellent. Would return, but probably only for a special occasion.

    We have been going to Blue Ridge for many years....a local favorite. But this time the food was so mediocre. Duck was a bit dry and served room temperature. Salad was over dressed. Soup not hot enough. Always a great ambiance but kitchen needs attention to detail that used to make it perfect. Service always great.

    BRG has been around a long time in restaurant years but it still delivers in quality and service. It is a warm and convivial setting and has a great menu. We drove 40+ miles to come here for brunch and it was well worth it. We will do it again. It's a real treasure.

    I took my wife here for out anniversary. They made the night very special by seating us in a romantic seat, decorated the table, a menu specifically for us that we could take home, a choice of a complimentary drink or a baked Alaska desert. The entire staff that we interacted with knew we were there for our anniversary and wished us a happy anniversary. The service was attentive but not overly so. The food was cooked to perfection. The wine list was good with both selections that we made being a really good wine. They went out of their way to make this anniversary very special.

    The room is very nice, especially if you get seated in the dining room with the fireplace and open kitchen. Unfortunately, we sat on the far side of the restaurant and just had a pretty blah view of the street. Not that big of a deal to us. Service was great. Knowledgeable, paced well, attentive without being overbearing, etc. The food was not all that impressive. We had the iceberg wedge for an app and it was quite good. Probably one of the better things of the night. IF you're a wedge purist, you might not like the dressing, but if you want a little something different, definitely go for it! The bread is AMAZING! The pork chop was seasoned well, but could have gotten it anywhere. Bread pudding was nice, but nothing stellar.

    Been here many times (and once since this review). What makes it great? First, the service is impeccable - from the greeting when you check in, to the last service by the server, they treat you like royalty. Second, the food is consistently great - not once, have I ever experienced something not prepared right - that consistency is hard to maintain for so many years and meals - they obviously love what they do! Go and enjoy - you will not be disappointed

    Blue Ridge Grill gave my husband and I a romantic get a way for the evening. Our table was decorated and the menus had "Happy Anniversary" printed on each one. The staff was warm and friendly, as well as, the setting. We enjoyed each course of our meal and didn't feel hurried. This is very important to us as we have a 15 and 13 year old teenagers who run us ragged. I had the duck breast and my husband had the flounder each meal was wonderful and full of flavor. If you are looking for a romantic evening or one with the family this is the place to go.

    The Blue Ridge Grill is consistently a high quality dinning experience. I have been enjoying their food, atmosphere and great people for almost 20 years. You will feel like you have been transported to the mountains. The porch is a wonderful place to gather with friends for drink. For lunch, check out the Lobster BLT. For a main course at dinner, the Trout topped with Arugula is my favorite. There is also a nice private dinning room downstairs which is perfect for a special event.

I travel quite a bit and drink wine all over the country and have never had my bottle of Pinot Noir served chilled. The waiter made it seem like this is the 'normal' and expected way to drink pinot....really? It ruined my and my guests meal. HORRIBLE!

    They went the extra mile for a birthday celebration-decorated the table, "Happy Birthday" notation on menu & complimentary baked Alaska- better than any I had in the state of Alaska & large enough for the 6 of us to share! Fantastic steaks, service & gourmet mac-n-cheese! Noise level was nice - could hear everyone is our party. Will definitely return!

    From the moment we arrived at the restaurant, the staff warmly welcomed us and made us feel special. It was for my date's birthday, and they made a customized menu printed for her, decorated the table, etc. etc. The staff were all adults, not immature young ones, and knew customer service. Food was absolutely delicious. It was such a delightful experience. I've been to this restaurant several times, but it was exceptional. I highly highly recommend this restaurant for those who thought America had forgotten what customer service is.
